Be a Booster!

today's reading.
Philippians 1:1-11   Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, with the overseers and deacons...

think about it.
What is Paul confident in (1:6)? What does Paul cover in his prayer (1:9-11)? How can this "remodel" your praying?

the blog.
Paul is truly an encourager and we see that here in Philippians 1:1-11. As Paul begins his letter to the Christ-followers in Philippi, he immediately tells them how thankful he is for their friendship and partnership in the gospel, and that he is praying for them.

I don't think I've ever met someone who didn't enjoy receiving encouragement. I know I love it…especially when it's not expected. So think about the last time someone gave you some encouragement. How can/will you pass that on to someone else today? Tami W.
